How well are you prepared for later life? Retirement could be seen as a new phase in life, but for some people, it is a daily struggle. That is why the Electrical Industries Charity launched the Pensioner Support Programme to provide support for elderly people in the electrical sector.
In the United Kingdom, there are 1.3 million individuals who work or have worked in the Electrical and Energy related sectors. 130,000 are eligible for support, of which 50,000 are pensioners who need help with day to day expenses, whether this is paying household bills, debts or unexpected expenses.

Many of us don’t put much thought and planning into our retirement, but without preparing for your future you could be faced with many issues that may prevent you from having a happy and secure retired life.
Age UK statistics outline that due to rising energy prices and leaky inefficient homes there are 1.14 million older people who are living in fuel poverty and are spending their winter in cold homes. This outlines the issue of increased health problems from living in a cold home which can include cardiovascular and respiratory problems and depression.
